Forest God Fantasy Photoshoot | Doing Two Photoshoots in One

Fantasy photography cosplay of an androgynous forest king

This fantasy photoshoot of a forest king came out absolutely beautiful!

Get your own headdress in the BlessedShadows Etsy shop! They’re perfect for any photoshoot, boudoir session or fantasy wedding.

This shoot was such a blast, and is SFW so I get to share the whole set!

Two Photoshoots in One

To maximize your lighting setup and time in the studio, consider doing two photoshoots in one.

Start with the simpler set, simpler hair and simpler makeup. The second shoot should have the more elaborate makeup.

Remember that it’s easier to build than to remove.

This strategy works even faster when the two shoots use the same lighting setup and backdrop, but of course feel free to switch it up between photoshoots.

Have you ever done 2+ shoots at once? What looks can you think of that would work well being shot on the same day? What shoot looks are complementary?

Can you guess what the second set in this double shoot was?

Blue Witch | Glow | Fantasy Portraits in a Small Studio

Fantasy moody portrait of a blue witch with glowing hands of magic.
Step into the Shadows and shop creations and join our OnlyFans~

 

A gorgeous fantasy shoot is sometimes as simple as a blanket hanging on the wall, a caplet made from thrifted curtains strung on a ribbon, and a touch-light.

With custom PS brushes (from a picture of an orchid taken a few years ago) and a fave DSLR, of course.

~~~~~~~~~~

The studio keeps getting smaller and smaller as Blessed Shadows expands and inventory continues to build, so it’s great to remember that beautiful photography doesn’t require a fancy studio.

My laptop is a decade old (if not older), the DSLR is a decade old, as well as my version of PS.  The newest piece of equipment I use for photography is my iPod 4th generation, used in some of the more selfie-style portraits.

 

We don’t need huge studios, expensive equipment, and the latest gadgets to create great work.

 Let’s upgrade as needed, and not sell ourselves short with a self-imposed expectation of needing all these other things to create.  It’s great to treat ourselves and improve what we’ve claimed as a studio, but there is no shortcut for just creating.

 

A $200 isn’t going to be a game-changer, $19 ones can be amazing.

Expensive equipment isn’t going to sell our work, we are.

 

Let’s keep creating with what we have, treat ourselves responsibly and accordingly, and do our best to think and act big on a small budget when we need.
